    Julius Cohen: In 1929, while just a teen, Julius Cohen began working for his uncles at Oscar Heyman Brothers. He spent thirteen years as an apprentice learning the old world approach and techniques of jewelry manufacture, before joining illustrious jeweler Harry Winston. He expanded the Winston brand across the US, most predominantly in Texas. Julius Cohen struck out on his own, opening a New York salon in 1955. His business catered to an exclusive clientele, by employing a marketing approach of serving clients at their homes. This exclusivity combined with excellence of craftsmanship and design made Julius Cohen jewelry highly sought after. The designer passed away in 1995. His business continues today under the leadership of his son-in-law, Leslie Steinweiss.
